WELSH storytelling company, Adverse Camber, will perform Dreaming the Night Field in two shows at the Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre this week.
Immerse yourself in glorious living landscapes and the brilliant night sky to discover a world that's bristling with life, filled with animals, people and constellations caught between creation and destruction.
Gwydion, nephew to the King, a magician and master storyteller, provokes a war between North and South Wales and unleashes a chaos of consequences.
Blodeuwedd, an intoxicatingly beautiful woman conjured from flowers, is torn between desire and duty, with fateful results.
Honour, justice, magic and transformation collide in a story as relevant today as it ever was, where people seek to spin, manipulate and control, and nature reveals its deep power.
By turns, thrilling, funny, powerful and poetic, this spellbinding new performance vividly evokes the ancient Celtic legend of the Fourth Branch of the Mabinogion.
Adverse Camber will be at BMEC this evening (Wednesday, May 15) from 7.30pm and again this Saturday, May 18 at 7.30pm before heading home to the UK.

Taking a step back in time at Heritage Trades Trail
THE 2019 Bathurst Heritage Trades Trail is on again this weekend.
The trail is a celebration of heritage and rare trades will be on show as practitioners demonstrate their skills in five locations all weekend.
Some of the rare and lost trades and crafts that helped shape the region will be showcased over the weekend of May 18-19.
Blacksmithing, saddlery, dry stone walling, whip cracking and making, glass artistry, lace making, tapestry, embroidery, carpentry and joinery, cigar box guitar making and violin making are among many unique talents to be demonstrated by local and guest artisans at four of Bathurst's outstanding heritage venues.
Highlights for 2019 include demonstrations of farm trades at the Agricultural Research Station, restoration crafts at Walshaw Hall, soft crafts (such as lacemaking) at CWA Hall in Russell Street and the Uniting Church Hall in William Street.
A shuttle bus will operate between venues.
The Bathurst Heritage Trades Trail tickets cost $10 per person for two days. Children under 16 are free.
Tipsy Scholars return to Bathurst for band night
BAND night returns to BMEC on Friday with the Tipsy Scholars as the healdine act.
Since the band's inception in 2014, there has been an organic camaraderie between the four members who met at The Australian National University in Canberra.
Having moved from their respective towns of Bathurst and Sydney, the group developed a strong bond through their shared love for music, visible every time the Tipsy Scholars step on stage.
